Hi at Avocode we are currently running the first development cycle, for now, we decided to skip tracking progress via the Hillcharts.
Some reasons why:
- We didn’t fully understand it
- We don’t use Basecamp so we didn’t want to waste our time with setting it up in a different tool
Now we are only tracking the progress via To-do lists which works ok, but still, it doesn’t tell you the exact progress of the project. So, I’d like to implement the Hillcharts method for the next dev cycle, but the biggest thing I struggle with is how to explain it to the devs. How did you explain to your dev teams how to use these Hillcharts? Even for me it is a bit abstract and I can imagine questions like “How should I know where to put the dot if I discovered this and this etc.”, “How should we start?” and other similar questions. In other words, I need to be sure that devs will understand it because otherwise, they won’t use it. So any advice about the explanation to the dev team or experiences with using the Hillcharts will help a lot.
